Do you think that 300-1000 gems to ascend a Raid troop to Mythic is overpriced? Let’s compare it to regular Glory packs!
You can use Glory to pull Mythics, right? If you used several thousand glory keys and pulled him, congrats, you didn’t touch your gem stash and saved lots of gems! To be precise:
142860 glory = 7143 glory keys = 1 Mythic = = 100 VIP chests = 4500 gems
142860 glory is worth 4500 gems!
300 glory = 9.5 gems 400 glory = 12.6 gems
Everytime we buy a glory pack, we waste 9 - 12 gems!
But! Keep in mind that glory pack gives you 10 gold keys, 2 glory keys and 5000 gold. To simplify, I will convert gold to gold keys. 26.7 gold keys, that is.
2 glory keys is 40 glory. 26.7 gold keys give us
2 glory keys = 40 glory 26.7*0.03*20 = 16 glory (3% chance to drop 20 glory) 26.7*0.01*1.5 = 0.4 gems (1% chance to drop 1-2 gems)
This means that glory packs actually cost
300 - 40 - 16 = 244 glory (Common-UR packs) 400 - 40 - 16 = 344 glory (Epic packs)
How much glory it takes to fully ascend an UR troop?
41 copies = 41*244 = 10004 Glory = 315 gems 41 packs will drop 41*0.4 = 16 gems 315 - 16 = 299 gems
Turns out ascending new troops is not as cheap as it seems!
Let’s do the same for all other rarities.
What you can use it for? Say, there is a kingdom that will be 7 or 9 stars.
You need a certain amount of levels on its troops to get kingdom power.
At some moment you realize that you need 1 more level.
What do you do: buy more copies of Invade troop with gems? Or spend glory to ascend the other troop? What is better?
With this chart you can evaluate how many gems you’re actually spending on ascension. Tasty!
